campaign. president obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, both favor expanding charter schools, support standardized tests and want more accountability from teachers and principals. but the two men have significant disagreements. >> i think some of the main differences between governor romney and president obama when it comes to education come in the area of school choice. governor romney sees a really robust rule for school choice and school improvement whereas president obama like a lot of democrats has been skeptical of vouchers. >> reporter: romney supports taking federal dollars for educating special needs and low income families, known as title i funds and giving them directly to parents in the form of vouchers. although romney avoids using that word. >> for the first time in history federal education funds will be linked to the student so that parents can send their child to any public or charter school of their choice. >> reporter: the obama administration is staunchly opposed. why not expand vouchers? why not give parents more choices? >> the goal can't be to remove on
or justice antonin scalia who are both in their mid-70s, if they retired, then president obama could replace a conservative or a right leaning moderate. >> reporter: here's who could make the nominee list if president obama wins a second term. california attorney general harris is getting a lot of buzz. >> the california attorney general has political experience, which is really missing on the court right now. >> reporter: another name circulating is ja kwlen wen. if she's nominated, the california-based federal appeals judge would make history as the court's first asian-american justice. but that's no guarantee. and for example if ruth bader ginsburg is the only justice to retire, the liberal side of the court would not get any bigger. just a little younger. >> and as you know, there's been a lot of speculation about whom romney might nominate. >> right. among them paul clement is one name we've heard. dia diane sikes and kav gnaw, a judge here in d.c. >> love to speculate. >> fantastic. >> all the names we've never heard of. >> happens a lot. i know. >>> we'll have a quick check of some of
're getting now. >> reporter: both obama and romney agree, that health care needs to be more affordable. they just disagree about how to do that. dr. sanjay gupta, cnn reporting. >> all right, thanks, sanjay. meanwhile, police in roseville, michigan, are about to begin drilling for clues in a search for the possible remains of jimmy hoffa. they will test soil samples from underneath a driveway. a teamster told police a body was buried there around the time the teamster's union chief vanished 37 years ago. that's what a tipster says. let's turn to the author of "hoffa wars." he's been following this story since hoffa first disappeared. dan, you've been communicating with this tipster since last march. you've talked to him several times since then. tell us about this person. >> he called me on march 30th, and he told me, and i got dozens of these tips over the past 37 years, he told me that he knew specifically where jimmy hoffa's body was buried. of course, i was very skeptical. i questioned him about a number of things. he -- i was -- i remained skeptical throughout the interview. the c
in about every answer, both of you. president obama indicates he believes the public sector can create jobs and help the economy. his opponent says that by helping the private sector, they will create jobs and help the economy. where do you stand on the public sector creating jobs? >> i'm sorry, representative baldwin, you're first. >> thank you. that is the critical question in this election. people are going to vote based on who has the plans to get our economy moving again, to get better jobs. i believe that the government can do things to foster private sector job development. let me just talk about the basic investments we need to protect in order to do that. it's education and research and innovation, it's infrastructure. and unfortunately my opponent is supporting a budget plan because he's giving such huge tax breaks to the very wealthy and raising taxes on middle class and small businesses, they are slashing the very investments they think is essential to our growth. the other thing important is in wisconsin we make things. manufacturing is part of the backbone of this state. i hav
. i was very supportive of both president bush and president obama in afghanistan, mainly because of the hope we can turn around what happens to women. we have the same problem we had in vietnam. when you're working with a corrupt government, people can't work to save themselves, you can't save them no matter what. we need to get out. >> the fight against al qaeda continues not only in afghanistan, but increasingly in north africa. the "washington post" is reporting the white house has held secret meetings to examine the terror group in the region. the al qaeda affiliate there is believed to have gained a large amount of weapons after the revolution in libya. and according to "the post," the white house meetings predate the attacks on the u.s. compound in libya and have included possible strikes against targets in north africa. i think it'll be interesting to hear how these issues are played out in one of the debates, which i believe is focused on foreign policy. i just want the candidates to be asked about this. >> there's also, mika, a front page in the "new york times" that eve
